Sangdae Kim, Head of Strategic Business Planning Division at Kia said, “This is important validation of a broad range of measures we are now taking to reduce the carbon footprint of a vehicle throughout its lifecycle. As we introduce more electrified models to our line up over the coming years, we will step up our sustainability efforts and ensure we are achieving high levels of transparency when it comes to environmental impact. It has been great to work closely with the Carbon Trust to achieve the Carbon Measured label as one of our first steps to implement new sustainability initiatives.”
Kia fully recognises its responsibility to adhere to sustainable practices. In 2019, the company obtained ‘Energy Management System (ISO 50001)’ certification from the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) and has recently applied for certification from the Korea RE100 Committee.
